This information circular lists all research projects known to be active in British Columbia in the period from April 1993 to March 1994. The purposes of this circular are: 1) to list active wildlife research projects with respect to species studied, location, status, agency involvement, purpose, and principal contacts; 2) to promote communications and cooperation among wildlife researchers working in the province; 3) to promote greater awareness of the number of individuals and agencies conducting research; and 4) to foster development of a B.C. Wildlife Research network.
Although this is the fifth attempt to catalogue research projects, it will still contain errors and omissions. Please be assured that none of these are deliberate! Each year the list will be more complete as the list of researchers expands and if you let us know of any errors, omissions, or upcoming projects.
There is always the question of what projects should be included in this list, i.e., is a project research or not? To meet the need for promoting communications, we have erred on the side of inclusion rather than exclusion. Most of the listed projects are sponsored by government or are graduate theses which are characterized by those activities usually associated with research endeavours.
